Tank & Pipe Bunding

Harena is unique able to assist with the bunding of fuel and oil tanks, including associated pipework. Harena will permanently bond with all hydrocarbon types, isolating them from the surrounding environment.

Whether it’s a domestic tank containing kerosene or a commercial fuel tank, Harena is an effective preventative solution to tank and pipe splits and leaks.

Column Test

In a 24hr column test (above), Harena is able to completely prevent contamination of a chalk layer from 500ml of garage waste oil.

Pipeline Test

Our pipeline test shows that the oleophilic properties of Harena. A simulated leak using garage waste oil shows the escaped oil being drawn along the gully without contaminating the chalk sub layer.

Fuel and oil spillage

Our Harena product is able to fully bond with hydrocarbons found naturally in fuels and oils, including synthetics. Fuel and oil is adsorbed by a unique coating until it is fully and permanently bonded.

Harena will adsorb from a wide variety of surfaces including concrete and asphalt, providing a complete clean without residue or staining. Due to it’s hydrophobic properties it is effective in both wet and dry conditions.

Highly flammable spillages such as petrol is rendered safe once fully bonded to Harena, thereby reducing the risk of secondary accidents during cleanup. The adsorbed material is bonded irreversibly to the surface coating preventing release into the local environment.

Used Harena will become a dry, non-toxic crumb and unlike many alternative absorbents, will not form a mud or leach over time. Harena will remain fully hydrophobic even after use.

Highway construction and accident safety

Used at an accident, Harena will greatly increase site safety. The rapid adsorption of fuels and oils will minimise the risk of environmental damage, slippage and fire. Reducing the potential of secondary accidents.

Our Harena product is able to bond with and remove fresh bitumen from the highway surface to assist with a accident cleanup process or with highway repair and construction.

Aviation and airport safety

Our Harena product has the ability to improve safety and reduce the risk of potential accidents at airports hangers, and aircraft maintenance depots. In an industry where the safety is the top priority, Harena is the best solution to reduce accident risk from slippage, fire or environmental damage.

Polymer spillage

Harena has the ability to adsorb many liquid form polymer spills, containing the spill permanently within its unique coating and allowing for easy removal from site.

Environmental cleanup – land and water

Harena can be very effective in an environmental cleanup operation, including the cleanup of waterborne spillage. Used on a water surface, Harena will float until it has adsorbed the spillage. Once adsorbed the used product will drop to the bottom and naturally biodegrade safely. Our product is effective on both fresh and salt water enabling an effective clean of spillages of any environmental scale.
